AWARDS CEREMONY
The Awards Ceremony will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 7th at the Billerica Elks. Registration through March 2nd is $34.00.  After March 2nd the fee is $40.00. The only students not eligible for this program will be the preschoolers, as we feel they need time to be introduced to dance.  For more information, please see Lori at the front desk. 

COMBINING CLASSES
In order to make dance numbers in the recital more exciting we combine small classes.  A group of fifteen or more is ideal on stage.  In some cases we will be combining several small classes for production numbers.  We will inform you individually if your child is in a class to be combined and supply you with further information as to exact dates and times.  We apologize for any problems this may cause but feel the end product is worth the extra effort.  Also, in order to get all siblings and relatives in the same recital, some switches will be required. Again, sorry for any inconvenience
 
RECITAL
Also, be sure the spelling of your child's name is correct in the parent portal.  This is the list we use for the Program Ad Book.

PROGRAM BOOKS
We will be working on the recital program books in the near future.  If you are interested in having a picture or advertisement in the program book, a form is available at the front desk.  Examples and last year’s program are on the bulletin board.
